This black floating shelf is about three and a half feet long, and I know there are two different types of brackets out There one like this and one that has 2 or 3 different prongs sticking out insulation is basically the same for both of them. The lack comes with rectangular washers, as you can see on the end, or at least I think, they're called washers, I'm going to call them that anyway, and also an Allen, wrench, and screws.
But you will need to get your own screws to fix the shelf to the wall, so I'm using those blue screws there they're screws - and these are really good. They're good for concrete walls and what's amazing about them - is that they don't require any anchors. So you can screw them directly into the wall. You'll need a drill, the appropriate drill bit and a screwdriver bit, and always your protective glasses and a level to make sure your shelf isn't lopsided.
Once you've figured out the right place on your wall for your bracket to hang, take your level and make sure that your bracket is indeed level, of course, and once you've done that, take your pencil to mark where you want to drill the holes. Now I'm going to drill three holes, one in the center and one on each side. If you have a pronged bracket check the description box for my two cents on how to install it now, it's time to drill the hole.
So you get your drill and you drill the holes appropriately and I've got a whole other video with all the instructions about drilling into walls in particular cement walls. So you can check out that video to see how I do that, so the holes are drilled and now is time to fix the bracket to the wall. So starting at the center point. I put the washer thing against the bracket and I put the screw in and I would normally drive the screw with a drill, but I actually got a noise complaint, so condo living problems, and so I had to use my screwdriver but.
I got pretty secure, but I would definitely use the drill to secure the bracket. The time has come for me to attach the Shelf to the bracket. I lined up the holes on the shelf with the gaps in the bracket and then I went into my tool belt ie my jeans pocket and took out the first screw now, starting in the center. I inserted the screw by hand and then I finish it off with the Allen wrench now I only screwed it in about 75 % of the way, and then I got the other screw and put it in on one side, and I put the other screw on The other side, and little by little, I secured the shelf securely to the bracket. Note that I position the brackets so that the screws would be on the top instead of the bottom.
